A Princess Bride wedding channeling Westley and Buttercup themselves

Updated May 30 2021


You know our Offbeat Brides love them some references to The Princess Bride. (See our tag archive for proof!) The Impressive Clergyman makes appearances regularly. But rare is the time when we get some full-on Westley and Buttercup cosplay! Nicole and David were the two starring roles (including red dress, Dread Pirate Robert mask, and sword!), and their guests all dressed to match the occasion. Naturally, peanuts were served with a sign reading, "Anybody want a peanut?" Thanks to Heather Elizabeth Photography for sharing this fabulous wedding with us.






Even Peter Falk's role as the grandfather is represented by their officiant!

  1. very well done and completely adorable!
    LOVE the level of participation – it shows a very loving and supportive community and looks like a great time too!

  2. Ahh, this is absolutely amazing! LOVE her dress, his outfit, the whimsical touches, the guest participation…everything! Looks like such a lovely, heartfelt day right out of a fairytale!

  3. I'm in love with this. The Grandfather as officiant with the movie-book is my favorite. Amazing on all levels! Happy! 😀

  4. Oh, this gives me such a happy!! I really would like to reference Princess Bride at my wedding, but my friend did the "Marriage, marriage is what brings us together today" (but said without a lisp so it was kinda sneaky and subtle) at her wedding last year. We're naming tables after places in fantasy literature, movies, tv, instead of numbering them, and I'm calling one table Florin I think.

  5. I am SO SO excited we are featured on this site!! We had the best time at our wedding. Truly one of the happiest days of my life!! SUPERMAN – Thank you so much for reaching out to me! What a wonderful Valentine's day surprise 🙂

  6. Full profile PLEASE????? If nothing else, more detail porn? This is too awesome & you guys obviously went all out & I want to know about every teensy little detail you did!

  7. Oh my God! I'm totally geeking out! I absolutely LOVE this movie/book. My husband and I joked around about having the officiant say "Maawage… Maawage is what bwings us togever toooday." didn't happen. I hope they at least got it.

    BTW, shout out to Alamo Drafthouse for the Bottle of Whits wine that made an appearance here.

  8. I must say… this might be my favorite wedding I've seen on here. Or at LEAST top 5. Amazing styling and what amaze-balls community support and participation!!! Congrats!!!!!

  9. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! But if I could just correct one thing–the officiant doesn't have the same edition of the book as was read in the movie. That's the 25th anniversary edition, published in 1998, more than a decade after the movie came out in 1987.

  10. I wish I was friends with these people! (Or I wish my friends were as awesome as their friends!) This wedding looks freaking awesome! I love that the guests dressed up and all the Bottle of Wits, her dress is perfect, and omg THE PEANUTS! Too. Perfect.

  11. The coolest brides have some element of The Princess Bride in their weddings…I had part of the wedding ceremony in mine (and didn't tell the officiant SHHHHH!). Our cool friends got it and we all reveled in our mutual coolness. 😀

  12. This is absolutely adorable! I love it. I was smiling all the way through the article. 😀

  13. Oh wow! What a awesome wedding. I love the princess bride. I used different things from the movie in my wedding. The marriage, marriage line. Said the same way as the movie. Also used as you wish, true love, rous'es and some other cute I things. But this is an awesome wedding
